Description:

       “You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away, you know where you hope this train will take you, but you can't be sure.” This is a sophisticated production using the classic imagery of a train and a suitcase as an inspiration throughout. A wide array of subtle textures and styles for winds and percussion are guaranteed to raise the maturity level of your ensemble. The attention to musical clarity within the score allows this to be a wonderful production for bands of any size. And with so much room for visual interpretation, any design staff would have a field day creating their own version of this show.
